    i would start at 94, can go to 99 or 100 with H1000. i used 250 primers though.

    Thanks Dave, I'll play with that. Have you ever played with rl-22 in the Edge? Quickload sure makes it look interesting. I may look into it as well.

    yeah, played with rl22, speeds were about the same, i got lower spreads with 1000. i shoot 99 of 1000 with the 250MK and the gamekings are pretty much the same.

    Thanks again. I'll start with the 1000, and probably end there (as I did with the 300SMK)

    Thanks Dave,

    AJ,

    H1000, RL25, Retumbo, and RL22 would be the powders to consider.
